New Gmail confidential mode goes live

As Google notes, "Although confidential mode helps prevent the recipients from accidentally sharing your email, it doesn't prevent recipients from taking screenshots or photos of your messages or attachments".

How to use Gmail's Confidential Mode on your mobile phone To get started, you'll need the updated version of Gmail on your phone. Many new features were added that built on work Google had done with other applications and were finally bringing over to the email platform.

In addition, Confidential Mode will let you set a password for viewing documents, that way only those with the password can view them. With a passcode enabled, recipients of the confidential mode email will have to enter a code that they will receive in an SMS message on their phones. This will allow users to send emails and attachments with confidential information therein, coupled with expiration dates as well as the ability to revoke access to the content whenever they want.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) digital privacy advocacy group thinks that this new mode isn't secure at all, and might even lend users a false sense of security.

Trump defends tariffs, says USA 'was built' on taxing imports
In addition to those tariffs, China is dissatisfied with the subsidies the United States provides to locally-made photovoltaics. USA officials say such action is necessary because the WTO lacks the capacity to deal with China's problematic trade methods.

Similar to what Telegram introduced years ago, Gmail users can now set a self-destruct timer for a defined period on all outgoing emails. Tap on the three dots appearing on the right top corner and choose "Confidential Mode". This is a server-side update, so you don't need to go looking for an update in the Google Play Store. You can also bypass the passcode feature.

The company's support page describes confidential mode in more detail.
